    Strange ichat problem. As soon as I added my wife's new MAC to our home
    network, HER name appears in my MAC's iChat as the sender of IMs. Only my
    name is set in iChat. I am the only USER listed in MAC System Preferences.
    My only guess is that Rendesvous has something to do with it. Related to
    this: sometimes when I fill out an on-screen form at a website my mac will
    auto fill in the address, town, etc but it also fills in HER name and not
    mine. She has never used my MAC. I've tried reinstalling iChat but problem
    is still there. I have the latest OSX version and latest iChat. Thanks in
    advance.

    How do your two Macs (not MACs -- they're something else) get their
    IP addresses ? Did you set them manually or use some server ? Is
    there any chance they're using the same address ?
